22 Bridal Shower Game Prizes Your Winners Will Want to Take Home
Oftentimes, the bridal shower is just one of many wedding-related events. For lots of guests, there's already been an engagement party, the bachelorette is coming up and the nuptials themselves are just around the corner! So many loved ones put an immense amount of time and effort into showing they care about the "I do"s—and we love them for that. But we also love the idea of returning the favor. Offering up some great bridal shower game prizes is one small but appreciated way to do so.
Many bridal showers include guests from different realms of the bride's life and merging these groups can prove to be quite the task. This is where bridal shower games—complete with amazing prizes—come in handy, enticing party-goers to actively participate and engage with one another. Bridal shower game prizes can be lighthearted and humorous or perhaps inspire a self-care Saturday. Regardless of the tone you take, we recommend memorable (and actually useful) rewards that don't pull too hard at the purse strings. This list of prizes is sure to have everyone from the college friend to Great Aunt Catherine scrambling for a win.
